and in many of martin luther king's speeches. people talk about kennedy's inaugural about swords and switchbacks. it's a technique that worked brilliantly for john f. kennedy but i think the president had caught the aura of dr. king today quite well. >> pelley: and this day being inauguration day and martin luther king day all at the same time. doug, thanks very much. cbs news live coverage of the inauguration of president obama will continue from washington in just a moment. [ male announcer ] nearly sixteen million people visit washington dc every year. some come to witness... some to be heard. we come to make an impact. to learn from leaders... and to lead others. to create... and create change. we are the george washington university... we come to make history. your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes. and they have six grams of sugars. with
of martin luther king and abraham lincoln. this is martin luther king day. we celebrate that, as well. the second time a president has been inaugurated on martin luther king day. about 800,000 people will be there on the mall. a little bit smaller than four years ago. but no less buoyant. a lot of smiling faces out there. we hear the choir of p.s. 22 in staten island. >> they are the largest choir in staten island. and i believe they are fifth graders. let's listen to them for a second. ♪ don't pay no mind to the feeling, until you feel it ♪ >> we love the caps. we love the swaying this morning. we've been thinking to ourselves, a second inauguration is typically not as -- not as surprising as the first inauguration. but nonetheless, it rededicates this country to big ideas. and the person who has to do it in his speech, walking up to the podium, is the president. we saw the first family walking in to st. john's church earlier this morning. >> they're at that worship service right now. there they are, right there, just before they walked into st. john's episcopal church, across th
't believe that now there's a monument to martin luther king on the mall. and that an african-american president is being -- is being elected and for her, she said the most humble tone, these were dreams that were dangerous to even articulate when i was growing up and now i'm seeing america in that way. this is the beauty of this day. you have the president being inaugurated at a time that coincides with martin luther king's birthday. and it's a good reminder that as tough as things seem, bob, as difficult and challenging of a moment we should in american history, this idea that we are a country that is constantly evolving and changing and the president has a chance to make some incredible history now. immigration reform i think is going to be strong. i think he can find a note of unity on gun safety. here you have a nation where over 80% of gun owners believe in things like universal background checks and closing secondary markets. this gives the president the arc of the moral universe and bending it to justice and showing that this country is strong at the core. >> mr. mayor
it is amazing that he is taking the oath of office on the bible of lincoln and martin luther king, and martin luther king had this to say, and if i can quote him -- it is a simple matter of justice with the task of raising the negro from backwardness should also be rescuing the forgotten a white sport. a bill of rights for the disadvantaged, marked the rise of a new era in which the full resources of society would be used to attack the tenacious poverty which so paradoxical exists here. >> that is tim from gainesville, florida. he mentioned the lincoln and bible and the king bible. the lincoln bible itself, according to the library of can -- of congress, is bound in burgundy velvet with a gold washed white metal rim around the three outside edges of the covers. all edges are heavily guilt. in the center of -- of the top cover, there is a shield of cold wash with the words "holy bible" etched into it. the king bible was dr. king's trebling bible. an avid reader, dr. king traveled with a selection of books that included this bible the president will be using. it was used for inspiration and pre
of belonged to martin luther king. >>> big days ahead, and i am jealous, because wendy rieger had the chance to touch lincoln's bible. >>> we have got fog this morning -- just kidding. that was last sunday. no fogfest here. did i trick you, chuck? >> don't scare me. we have been baby sitting the forecast very carefully with everybody coming into town, and with the fog bank last week i don't want to hear the word "fog" for a while. and for early morning joggers and walkers and people heading out to the services, temperatures are in the 30s near 40 degrees, and very mild by january standards. and a breeze has windchills in the low to mid-30s, and there's a touch of bundle up factor and not all that cold. and up in the low 50s for a time today, we will see clouds on the increase and it's going to be a breezy day today. cold front number one, that will be the breeze and the beginning of the cooldown. how much cooler? may see snow flurries on the parade tomorrow ahead of the true arctic air. our coldest air in more than two years coming our way for the rest of the week coming up. >>> right now, g
the goals. >> the goals of -- i'm sure he'll bring in martin luther king and the goals that he shares with him and with the country. and trying to get congress to work together to pass all the initiatives. >> marcela, you have the whole list ticked off in your head there. thank you so much for the work that you're doing today. everyone, we're back to work. say back to work. back to you. >> robin, thanks very much. everyone is due to arrive here at the capitol less than two hours from now. at this moment, he's beginning the start of his second term in prayer. our white house correspondent brianna keilar is outside st. john's church. that's right near the white house. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is on the national mall. brianna, let's go to you first. tell us what's going on. what is about to happen? >> reporter: hi there, wolf. i am across from the church where president obama and mrs. obama are inside sitting, not in the traditional president's pew, but in the first row, as is the vice president and his family, and i want to show you, if this bus will move behin
, but in the future. interesting that this inauguration falls on martin luther king's birthday. and 50 years ago, in 1963, that king gave his speech on the steps of the lincoln memorial. i am sure there is going to be some connection to that in the process. this is a fulfillment of what king had looked for. but what is left, what would expect to be done, i am sure that is part of the president's thinking. it is a little strange, also, for those who work for the federal government in washington did we always get -- washington. we always get king's birthday off. the question is, why didn't we have the inauguration on sunday? we've never had a formal outdoor ceremony on sunday. the sense is that the president should be sworn in privately on the white house on sunday. it is a wonderful coincidence that obama's is being held on martin luther king's birthday. >> we have had many speakers come this week and talk about the current polarization of congress. what you think about the polarization of congress? how can we bridge the gap going forward? >> is definitely polarized. the two political parties hav

assessment -- martin luther king, jr. [applause] so the president will clearly be in the foreground, but dr. king looms large as the backdrop. now, word comes from the white house that they will use his bible for this historic and iconic celebration, so we will talk tonight about how we honor the legacy of dr. king by focusing more attention on the issue that he gave his life for -- the poor. king once said we have to civilize ourselves by the immediate abolition of poverty. obviously, we are not quite there yet, but we of tonight's conversation will aid us and of that as in trying to make sure that we look out for the least among us. i am pleased tonight to be joined by an all-star panel. i want to introduce them one by one and jumped right into the conversation. i want to start by thanking c- span for carrying this program live around the world tonight.

with no accountability whatsoever, not just politically, but economically. let me say this. martin luther king jr. today could be taken to jail without due process or judicial process under the national defense authorization act because he had a connection with a freedom fighter, nelson mandela. he just got off the terrorist list in 2008. he had a relation to a terrorist. under the present administration, and you can take americans to jail without due process. the black freedom movement has always been suspicious of it. headwe have black prisoners in their precisely because they were willing to tell the truth that was a threat and we do not talk about them. that is why the culture of fear is not just violence. people are afraid. they are afraid to lose their jobs. they are afraid to lose their status. not going to be nice tea parties, the white house. you cannot have a culture of fear and generate a movement. it is not just about justice. we have got to talk about love. martin was a titan of love. if you are not talking about love and willingness of sacrifice, we are not going nowhere. you have to be wi

of a saint dressed in the skin of a baby boy by the name of martin luther king, jr. and while dr. king's legacy has been most accurately described in terms of his nonviolent pursuit of civil rights, some unfortunate and deluded individuals have tried to claim that a gun appreciation day this coming weekend will somehow honor the great man's legacy. it's such nonsense that it's hardly worth the time refuting. but as the president now reflects upon recommendations from his gun violence task force, there are some words of dr. king that seem particularly pertinent. in his famous letter from birmingham jail written in 1963, dr. king spelled out the perennial danger of doing nothing because doing something may be difficult. as we continue to remember those 20 children and 6 staff members who were shot and killed at that elementary school in newtown, connecticut, let's heed the words of dr. king. we will have to repent in this generation, he wrote, not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people, but fohe
